Re: AD14/16 cockpit seats

Hallo SP, X is 649 mm according to my plan at the intersection of the sole and seats with bulkhead C ( at the front end of the cockpit ) X is 478 mm at station D ( more ore less between min C and max at T transom ) X is about 520 mm at the transom. ( This is my guess because one cannot find the exac...

Re: AD14/16 cockpit seats

Hallo SP, I am building an AD14 and wondered also about the seats if they will be ok for me and my short legs. I think I will build the skirt along the side that I at least dont slide with my heavy bum into the water. I have seen it on Georges AD16 which is praxis proven for years and he also has a ...

Re: CH14 metric dimensions and materials issues

Hallo MartinV, I can answer only your question about woodflour. I cut the marine plywood ( 6 mm ) with a very fine tooth jigsaw blade and the resulting sawdust I put thru a tea strainer which i have seen once as a joke from a Dutch poster. ( My dutch born wife says it is a tee zeef ) This works perf...

Re: AD14 Station C location ?

Hallo Bondo and Salvatore, Thank you both for the help. It is correct that I want the distance from B to station C for the spacing of the cradle supports. I did find the location of C with Bondos tip that if I follow the right angle of the centeboard case (already built) down and where it crosses th...

Re: AD14 Station C location ?

Hallo Salvatore, Thank You very much for the fast reply. I think on the AD16 plan you have got a measurement to the base of station C while I have on the AD14 plan no measurement to C. 833 mm to A , 855mm to B , 686 mm to the base of Bulkhead C, 1143 to D You write that the measurement to C is somet...

AD14 Station C location ?

Hallo Jaques, Unfortunately I cannot find the position of station C on plan D264/4 Stations. I want to set up the cradle with the supporting frames at station A C and T and I battle to locate C. The top of bulkhead C is 686 mm from B and I think station C is about 300 mm further in the direction to ...

Re: Adelie16 from a land down under

Hallo Salvatore, I follow the build of your boat since May 2014 and I admire the speed with which you put it together and besides that you also think out all the problems of an Adelie builder like the loo position and now the lifting of the centerboard. I am also busy thinking this thru but you are ...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hallo Bondo, Thank you very much for the info, I will do it naturally your way. I forgot that the strength comes from the fiberglass connection to the sides of the boat. I am doing well with my build and I will post some pictures as soon I have the cradle finished. Did You actually bevel the frames ...

Re: AD14 Question for Jaques

Thank you Jaques,
I forgot the fiberglass makes it really strong. Bytheway Bondo gave me the same answer that he built the stem per plan out of one piece of 13 mm.
Greetings from Karl

AD14 Question for Jaques

Hallo Jaques, I have a specific question about the AD14: On the nesting plan sheet it is suggested to cut out of a 13 mm plywood the rudder twice, the transom 3 times, but the stem only once. I tend to laminate 2 pieces to have more strength in it like the rudder. Should I do this ? ( I am thinking ...
